University of Nashville. We
take pleasure in calling the attention
of our readers to the advertisement of
this old and worthy University, which
was founded in 1783. The next session
of the college and preparatory depart

We know there is s strong, but as
we believe mistaken prejudice against
taxing dogs. If, however, any one will
calculate even proximately the num
ber of dogs iu this county, most of
which are worse than useless, he will
see how much such a tax will add to
the school fund. Rut, some argue
that the tax will amount to a mere
trifle because rather than pay it, the
dogs will bo killed ; if so sheep rais
ing may be made profitable, and the
wool and mutton sawd under the oper
ation of the tax, will add no small
item to the aggregate value of agricul
tural products, and if the food given
to dogs, were fed to pigs the bulk of
pork would be greatly enlarged.
If a man were to travel through the
county to get up dog statistics his re
turns would show the largest propor
tionate number of dogs among those
least able to indulge such a dog-gon'd
fancy, and many . owning a dog that
own nothing else. And, we think, he
would report, as true in general, that
the number of dogs on any given farm,
is a good index to the thrift and com
fort of the family that harbors them.
There are exceptional cases of rich
men who keep many dogs to contribute
to their passion for sport, but those
canines are worse than usless, because
they entice their owners from useful
employment and encourage neglect of
high duties, and ought, therefore, to be
taxed not only as a measure of politi
cal economy, but as promotive of mor
al and industry.
In town, there is do apology for
keeping dogs, except well trained ter
riers, or perhaps, poodles to be caressd
by fair ladies when their two-legged
puppies are out. A good guard dog
like an honest man has & poor show
ing among thieves and is sure of a dose
of strychnine whenever his honest vig
ilance becomes known to prowling
depredators. If the useful dog is not
permitted to live in town, why not tax
out of it, the many curs and bench
legged Sees whose nightly yelping and
howling is a serious annoyance to all
who love unbroken slumbers and, es
pecially, to the nervous sick upon
whom quiet has a most sanitary influ
ence. What is the fiifference, in equi
ty, between fining a man for not abat
ing a nuisance, and taxing him for
keeping a nuisance on his premises ?
If we cannot build the railroads
projected for the benefit of Clarks
ville, suppose we try a steam wagon for
the roads running out into the rural
districts. There is said to be such a
wagon running, or about to run, be
tween Pulaski and Nashville, with a
capacity of 10,000 pounds of freight,
or sixty passengers. Its broad tires
will keep turnpikes in good order and,
no doubt, in good weather will prove
a success on dirt roads. With such a
wagon on each of the pikes running
to, or cross the State line much
freight which goes elsewhere, may be
brought here, besides doing a good
business in carrying passengers.
We acknowledge our error in stat
ing that the Louisville correspondent,
Mr. Merrill, said "Princeton claims
GOO inhabitants," &c. He was speak
ing of Eddyville. The error was un
intentional, as we believe our neighbor
of the Banner thinks. Far be it from
us to say or do anything to detract
from the reputation of any neighbor
ing town or city. But our slip of the
pen will, in this case, do more good
than harm, as we gave the Banner man
a good chance to set forth the merits
of his pretty town and prettier women.
If you are not satisfied with this cor
rection, Mr. Banner, meet us at the
State line, and let an umpire be ap
pointed to settle the matter.
Railroad Tax Sales. Next Mon
day, 7th inst., John R. Martin, rail
road tax collector, will proceed to sell
certain tracts of land and town lots, or
so much thereof as will pay the taxes

of the Montgomery county circuit court,
made at its May term 1S71, and its Jan
uary term,lS72. These lands and town
lots are sold to pay taxes due on them
for the years 1859, CO, '61, '65, '66, 'C7,
'68, and '69 and the sale will be con
tinued from day to day until all is sold.
All parties interested will do well to

contrary. We are of opinion that the
present law will not be enforced a
great while, therefore do not see any
good reason for discriminating in se

; The.Focrth oy J CXY.--The declar
ation of Independence was proclaimed
93 years ago, yesterday. The Cincin
nati Enquirer has the following
thoughts suggested by a comparison of
things then and now : .
M Although one hundred years, an
even century, will not have elapsed
from the date when independence was
actually proclaimed, yet we have passed
that period when the great revolution
ary events occurred. lhe bring of the
troops upon the people of Boston was
in 1770, one hundred and three years
ago. What a century has that been

case where it falls far short of it. Of
all our revolutionists there were none
who saw further into the future none
who left better evidences of it than
old John Adams, the second President
of the United fetates. .In Xiao, when
but twenty years old, he wrote a letter
to a friend in which he gave a partial
foreshadowing of the future of this
country. He had evidently read Bish
op Berkeley's poem about " Westward
the star of empire takes its way;" but
who could nave loreseen the develop
ment of this country?
Then four months was a passage
across the Atlantic. Now it has been
bridged bv instantaneous teleeraDh.
and by a ten day's passage by steamer.
There is nothing in all history like the

We have achieved that in a single cen
tury which it usually requires ten cen
turies to develop. A hundred years
ago we were nothing. Now we are, all
things considered, the greatest empire
upon the globe, exercising more mflu
ence upon current events. 1773 1873
what a mighty chasm separates the
periods and marks the passage of time !
We can hardly calculate that there was
then a germ ot that country ot which
we are so mighty a development!
What a wonderful century we have
passed and are passing.

and our dealers in this line take pride
in keeping the largest and most varied
stocks of the best to be found in other

is not of the under current order, but
all endeavor to do a legitimate busi

ciple, thereby giving character to our
grocery trade to all the country and
markets around us.

The health of our-city up to this
time is as good as usual, at this season
of the year. There is, as we stated
last week, a predisposition to flux and
dysentery. We learn of one case, that
of a negro women, in the neighbor
hood of the gas works, who acted very
imprudently in eating, was taken down
last Sunday. No physician saw her
until she was in a decided collapsed
state she died that day. It is believ
ed that the disease, in her case, run
into cholera. Most of the sickness
here is confined to the negroes, who
against all advice.eat any and everything
they can get, and, as a general thing,
do not procure the attention ofaphysi
